that the older brother tamerlan was the leader in this? and that dzhokhar may have been the follower? >> i can't hear him. >> chris: okay. we have lost the commissioner temporarily. while we try to re-establish that connection, we're going to continue our conversation. and with so many questions still unanswered we'll come back to commissioner when we can. so many questions still unanswered about the terror plot and how to protect our homeland we invited two congressional leaders on national security to discuss what happens now. dianne feinstein is chair of the senate intelligence committee. congressman pete king is head of the house sub committee on counterterrorism and he joins us from new york. senator, congressman, hold on, we're going to go back to the police commissioner. do you have a sense whether the older brother tamerlan was the leader in this? and dzhokhar was somehow followed him in the conspiracy? >> any information along those lines is based upon conjecture at this point in time. i don't know definitively who was the motivator here. there is clearly evidence published publicly t

question this morning is: how much did other members of their family know? keep in mind that tamerlan, the 26-year-old suspect who was killed on thursday night moving into friday, that he was married. he was married to an american woman who became a muslim after she married him. they had a three-year-old daughter together. it's questionable now whether or not they were actually still together at the time of this bombing. some sources are saying that she, catherine, pictured here, had moved back home with her mother, judith, with the baby. and maybe that would be when tamerlan ended up going back to russia for those six months because if you're married and you have a small child, you might wonder, that would be suspicious to be gone for six months. >>steve: she is on the cover of the new york post today because she always dreamed of growing up, joining the peace corps and serving this country and others abroad. then she got tangled up with this guy, converted to islam. next thing you know, she dropped out. there is an interesting item in the "wall street journal" today that says essent
